The latest episode of Mann ki Baat comes a day after the Prime Minister's pre-recorded video address to the UN General Assembly where he said that the international community is faced with a very important question about the relevance of United Nations as the "requirements and challenges" of the present as well as the future are vastly different from those when the world body was constituted in 1945.
